Pictures taken early 1970's
The man in photograph, above, is my cousin Resen Page (1909 - 1995) and he is overlooking the rock which indicates where Barnabas is buried. Resen was the s/o William Rosias 'Osias' Page and Eveline Terrell 'Evelyn' Taylor, gs/o gs/o Hugh Page and Jemima Atnip, gt gs/o Barnabas Page and Mary Allen.
-Located midway between Dowelltown and Temperance Hall on a dirt road -District 12.
My great uncle, William Frendley 'Friend' Davis (1900-1980) and great aunt Delia Davis (1908-1971), children of Robert Davis and Exzine Cora Handy (Page) are standing near the graves of Solomon Davis and Thomas Jasper and Delia (Laurance) Davis. They made the same pilgrimage in the mid 1920's that I would later make in 40+ years to this 'Home of our Ancestors'. Pisgah cemetery was very near the Old Davis homestead, shown below, and was donated by the Laurance family of which I also descend.
I transcribed this cemetery myself in 1969 when I visited this county in search of my own ancestors - MANY OF WHICH ARE BURIED IN THIS CEMETERY. (I tried to keep them in order with any other pertinent genealogical information. Please let me know if you find any of your own ancestors buried here.

If you discover any mistakes, please write me and I will be more than happy to correct. Between the ages of 17-20 (1968-1971), I transcribed these listings during three trips to DeKalb County. I have since discovered that just about anyone who remained in DeKalb County for any length of time is related to me - either by blood or marriage.
It is my hopes that you will find these listings beneficial and you will locate more many more cousins and ancestors. Please share with others. If you do find a connection, I would really like to know about it- especially if your ancestor is buried at Pisgah Cemetery.
Except for Pisgah Cemetery (which was complete at the time I transcriped it -1969), please remember that these listings in no way constitute the entire listing of burials for these cemeteries.
